Lesson Pods are Ready to Make Music!
We've Been Busy!
Over the summer, we've developed a plan to create physically distant but synchronous lessons for music students at Elizabethtown College. Students will be able to take their lessons in "Lesson Pods"- rooms specifically set up to create high-quality, peer-to-peer connections between students and their applied teachers.
In each Lesson Pod are air filtration units (HEPA-certified), computers, webcameras, and microphones. We'll be using a service called ZipCall.io to connect the Lesson Pod computer to your teacher's computer directly... MUCH better than Zoom!
The set-up isn't perfect and we will need to adjust as we go, but it is a GREAT first step toward one-on-one lessons in a remote enviroment. Check out the instructions and video below. If you have questions, please let me know! See you soon!!!
- Use a good pair of headphones PLUGGED IN to the Yeti Mic (port is adjacent to the USB cable on the MIC)
- Adjust the GAIN knob on the back of the Yeti MIC so that the other person can hear you
- Leave the PATTERN dial set to CARDIOD (see image on left)
- Adjust the volume (coming through your headphones) so you can hear the other person...
